Captain Midnight here, reporting from Talybont in Brecon.
I brought Himself and Hedda here for a walk today. You know how it is with humans: they need to get out and stretch their legs now and again. Himself drove us from Crickhowell and parked up, then I showed them the way along the riverbank to the waterfall. As you can see, I put Hedda on the lead when we got close to make sure she didn’t fall in.
It was jolly nice to see my humans having fun. I chewed several sticks to indicate my approval and jumped onto Hedda’s lap when we got back into Rosie the Camper Van to show how much I like her. I think she appreciated how wet I was as she said it was like standing under the waterfall, before inviting me politely to go and sit in the back on my customary seat. I also took this picture of them both by the river (which is tricky without opposable thumbs).
I liked our stay in Crickhowell. We went everyday to a place called a Public House where I could sit in the garden while they drank tea and beer, stared at their phones, and got excited about something called a “wifi signal.” I was also allowed to go into the food shops and help them choose what to buy for supper (Black Bomber cheese and Welsh Dragon sausages were my favourites).
Himself and I are back in Folly Cottage this evening. It’s very quiet here and he seems a bit miserable on his own. I hope the pack gets together again soon.
